VISIT OF LORD GEORGE SANGER'S EXHIBITION TO BARRY. A WONDERFUL MAMMOTH SHOW. An interval of time extending to several years. has elapsed since the last occasion of the presence in the Barry district of the entire exhibition travelled by the world famous Lord George Sanger. The fact that the grand old showman is once more in our midst will be demonstrated in solid reality to-day (Friday) and to-morrow by the crowds of people who will, both afternoon and evening wend their way to the Witchill Ground, at Cadoxton, to witness the performances by which a welcome visit of the renowned triple attraction—colosseum, hippodrome and menagerie -will be auspiciously celebrated. The gigantic- combination of which he is the illustrious head several times appeared before the late Queen Victoria, and he speaks with pardonable pride of the pleasure her Majesty invariably expressed after each of the performances given by Royal command. The exhibition which Lord George will this week bring to Barry strikingly illustrates- the capacity of this Prince of Showmen to main- tain the attractions and programmes at a high artistic standard, and, at the same time, keep them up to date. The resources of the show seem illimitable whether it is wild animals or trained animals, or human performers, that the visitor wishes to see there, they are of every type and colour, and they supply every sort of feat, both skilful and daring, which the ingenuity of man, be he civilised or savage, can accomplish or suggest. Prior to the first performance at the wftchill Grounds, Cadoxton, Lord George Sanger will parade a portion of his entourage through the principal thoroughfares of the town. At the afternoon and evening performances the thousands of people who will crowd under the colossal canvas marquee will enthusiastically enjoy them- selves. The programmes are long, but the variety is so complete and unique that the end is reached before the audience fully realise the flight of the time. The equine display is superb. Beautiful horses-racers, jumpers, and chargers-will ex- ploit themselves to the delight and wonderment of the spectators. All the stirring episodes illustra- tive of Indian life, participated in by real natives, are a source of infinite joy and wonder. A grand finale is furnished by the Prairie Fire," which must be seen before its vivid effect can be adequately appreciated. After the Colosseum and Hippodrome entertainments, the visitor is treated, to the animated spectacle of the feeding of the wild animals in the menagerie. The whole stupendous three-in-one show, in all its elements, is intensely pleasing, refined, wonderful and highly educational. The present visit is of only two days' duration; two performances each day, afternoon and evening.
